PEACE Program

Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment (PEACE) Program for Children and Youth Experiencing Violence

Fill out our Referral Form

The PEACE Program provides supportive, psycho-educational counselling for children and youth, aged three to 18, who have witnessed or experienced violence in their homes.

PEACE program counsellors support children and youth to feel safe, respected, valued and heard, and to reduce their isolation. Our goal is to let them know they are not alone.

Our services are free, compassionate, culturally informed and confidential, and available in several languages. While the program’s focus is primarily on experiences of trauma from family violence, we are also able to provide support for children and youth who have witnessed or experienced violence as a result of migration.

With the help of this program, children and youth will:

  • Get one-to-one support to help them understand the experience or witnessing of violence
  • Have better safety around them as they move forward in their healing journey
  • Participate in group-based sessions to share experiences and learn about violence and healthy coping techniques

Who’s eligible?

  • Children and youth between the ages of three and 18 who reside in Surrey and Delta

We also provide support and information to non-offending caregivers and work with schools and other youth programs to provide prevention activities through the Violence Is Preventable Program (VIP).
